48th Annual Mark of Excellence Sale


We would like to welcome each of you to the 48th Annual Mark of Excellence Sale. This year’s offering is as deep as it has ever been and offers quality bulls and females for all types of cattle operations. The cattle being offered represent some of the finest genetics you will find in the state and are backed by some of the best donor cows to ever roam the rolling hills of Iowa. The state of Iowa is unlike any other when it comes to the commitment to the Simmental breed, as evident by hosting the largest Simmental Show in the nation each and every year at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. With this commitment to the breed you can rest assured that as you view this catalog as well as the cattle in person sale weekend that you are being given the opportunity to select fault-free cattle that will add to your bottom line for years to come. The 2017 calendar year witnessed some big gains in the fat and feeder cattle markets and the first part of 2018 is looking to follow suit. As I type this letter one of the brightest sectors of the Agricultural community is cattle production, and this sector is truly paying big dividends to those of us willing to put in the long hours calving, making hay, and breeding cows. In order to continue to add to your bottom line for the coming years we will offer up a tremendous set of bulls who will be sold with complete weights, scan data, and EPD information. Truly nothing will be hidden or held back, we will give you the buyer all the tools needed to select the next herd sire for your program. On top of the bulls being offered we will be selling a tremendous set of females who have the ability to produce the next big time show heifer or go out and make a great replacement female for your herd. All of the cattle being sold are tested free or parentage free of all known genetic defects and are up to date on all vaccinations so you can rest assured that every animal sold will become an asset to your program for years to come. The 2018 Simmental Junior Nationals will be held just up the road in St. Paul, Minnesota from July 2-7, 2018. If you haven’t had the opportunity to attend one of these events I would strongly encourage you to load up the trailer with the family and go try it. The AJSA and the ASA do a great job putting on these events and they make for a great opportunity for your Juniors to network and gain life skills. The open heifer division of this sale is studded with individuals that will make great show projects for your juniors as well as then go on to develop into productive cows in your herd. Dwyer Cattle would like to personally thank the Iowa Simmental Association for allowing us to manage this sale, it is truly an honor to get the chance to work with some of the best herds of Simmental cattle this state has to offer. For the past few decades this sale had been managed by Larry Martin Cattle Sales along with Greg Miller, we would like to take this opportunity to thank both of them for building this sale to the level it is at today. Both Larry & Greg have done a tremendous job over the years of marketing some great Simmental cattle through this sale, and we hope to continue on their tradition of Excellence. If you have any questions regarding this year’s offering feel free to contact any of the consignors, sale management, or sale consultants. We look forward to seeing each of you in Des Moines on February 12th. Thank you for your consideration, Dwyer Cattle Bob 309-337-1404 | Nick 309-337-6404 | www.dwyercattle.com

125D is a moderate frame bull that has a nice turn down his top and has a very nice shape to his lower quarter. 125D can cover a lot of ground with his correct set to his hind leg. 125D is one of the older bulls in the sale that will be able to cover more cows next spring. This High Regard son is big scrotal, fertile and ready to bred cows.

This solid black, blaze faced, big topped, deep sided Escalade son, really puts together the total package! Out of a Shear Pleasure daughter of our Portia donor, he hit the ground at just 68 pounds, the lowest birth weight of our fall bulls. He was our top indexing fall bull at weaning at 910 pounds and out top indexing fall bull as a yearling at 1512 pounds. His calving ease, growth, maternal, and carcass numbers are top notch. Outlander combines all this in a calm, cool package that catches your eye and demands your attention. He has a smoothness and flexibility seldom found in a bull with this much mass on a moderate frame. Outlander is the baldy bull with so much more.

In 2012, Escalade smashed the Iowa Beef Expo records and his sons continue to sort them selves to the top. Consistent calving ease, outstanding growth, maternal, and carcass values combined with that extra special “something” that sets them apart from the other sire groups. Well, Tucker fits that description to the letter. And he is that special genetic blend of two of our top donor cows, Fantasia and Mystieq. Tucker was the natural calf of our Mystieq donor that is known for stamping her offspring with near perfect structure. Check him out at the Expo. You will be glad you did.

Prestige - admiration felt for something on the perception of their achievements or quality. S5 Prestige got his name because we truly believe he is THAT good! This is a red bull we believe can do huge things for the breed. We would challenge you to find one that is bigger boned, wider topped, softer sided, and freer moving than “Prestige.” Some that have seen him in person have compared him to WC Fully Loaded. Do not just look at him in person but take a look on paper as well. This bull goes back to the great Longs Cutie cow and is backed by power and performance on both sides of the pedigree. If you’re in the business to be serious about raising seed stock that can get it done on all levels, take a long hard look at “Prestige.” We promise you won’t be disappointed!

Some bulls have numbers and others have the look but HLTS Sherlock is here to bring you BOTH! Super deep bodied, big boned, cool fronted, and as sound as one can be made. If you think he is impressive in person you should take a look at him on paper. “Sherlock” sits in the top 30% of the breed for calving ease and birthweight. Combine that with being in the top 10% of yearling weight, average daily gain, marbling, and all purpose index and you’ll be in love. Not to mention he is in the top 3% for terminal index. If you’re looking for that bull that can give you it all from the look to the numbers, this guy needs to go home with you!

The natural calf from the old reliable, $8000 donor, Wind Chime, and sired by WS Stepping Stone. A unique opportunity to put in one package. A very phenotypically acceptable individual, with an unbelievable strong set of EPDs. An 11+ calving ease, and a minus birth weight. A yearling weight over 100. Amazing carcass numbers in every category, with an API and TI way above average. In his contemporary group for birth weight,he ranked number one, with a 115 ratio. If you are looking for calving ease, in a relatively complete, free moving package, with a “no holes” pedigree, look no further.

This bull comes from a set of embryos we purchased from the Sim Magic sale in Denver from the Werning program of South Dakota. We were hoping for a red heifer but we got this guy instead and we certainly are not disappointed when the calf is this good. He is out of an outstanding cow that has produced many high sellers and top producers. Sequoia grew like a weed, is big boned, big bellied and packed full of red meat. He should produce a uniform group of calves that come easy and grow.

We continue to set the bar high again this year with what some feel could be our best RED bull ever consigned!! His picture explains everything you need to know phenotypically. His EPD’s are solid with a 9.1 calving and 112 API. His pedigree includes National Champion - GCF Amigo and a past National Western high seller - Long’s Steel Shot which Bob Dwyer saw at our farm as a calf.

This guy is one cool dude, but that should come as no surprise to anyone when you study his pedigree! A Pays To Believe son going back on a full sibling to the famous She’s So Sweet cow. Several full siblings in blood have sold extremely well for other breeders and the last maternal brother out of She’s So Pretty went to Bramlet Simmental’s in Illinois. Pretty Boy is homozygous black, huge footed, sound as a cat being very smooth jointed, stout made, deep sided and docile enough to think he was house broke! If you need to add performance to a set of calves then you just found your answer as he boasts an 844 pound weaning weight. And if every bull we ever raised looked as good as this guy we would not only be extremely happy, I bet we would have a much higher balance in our bank account too! Unfortunately bulls of this caliber don’t come along every day so don’t miss your opportunity on this exciting yearling bull.

We are extremely proud of our entry in the Foundation bull division. A performance bull in every aspect. However, he incorporates some extremely maternal on the sire side through “Upward”, “Onward”, and “Henrietta’s Pride”. His dam side brings performance and phenotype, through “Broker,””Warehouse”, and “Meyer 734”. He is stout, sound as a dollar, free moving, well sprung, and a great disposition. Needless to say, he has had me pretty impressed all his life. In his one trip to town, he was named calf champion, and reserve grand champion at the 2017 Clay County Fair. I can’t explain how complete and functional this bull is. If you are interested in this caliber of bull,please come to the Expo and take a look, or come to the farm ahead of the Expo to see for yourself. My grandson and I have sold bulls the last couple of years,near the top of the sale. I really feel this bull is in the same category with those previous consignments.

He is in the Top 5% of the breed for Weaning Weight, Yearling Weight and Average Daily Gain. In the Top 10% for Carcass Weight and Terminal Index. Also in the Top 15% for Calving Ease and API. Rounding off in the Top 25% for Birth Weight in the breed. This is one bull that can definitely do it all and we are extremely proud to offer him to you.

He’s big footed and has a high probability of being homo black; I would think just about anybody could use a bull like this one. Next Step is a natural calf out of our oldest donor that never misses and she certainly didn’t this time either.

This bred heifer is straight from the top end of our replacement females. Study her pedigree and you will notice she is a maternal sister to the great Wide Open! She is sired by Battle Cry who is the most consistent sire we have ever used in our operation. Predictable genetics on both the top and bottom side of the pedigree here. If you look at her individual performance, she certainly has some talking points as well. She ratio-ed 107 for birth, 108 for weaning, 100 for REA and an astounding 139 for Marbling. Here is an attractive made female with a killer look that is great legged and super sound. She is stout made with added body depth and the cow family she comes from stamps them with great feet and udders. She is bred to the great young CEO bull with a possible breed changing bull calf on board. Check out the planned mating EPDs. I am not sure where in the country you are going to find a bred heifer that combines cow family, a predictable sire, a mating to one of the breeds great young bulls plus a phenotype that is second to none. Here is a future donor ready to make her mark on the breed!

She is bred for a three quarter blood that could pay for her in the first calf.

We have retained her two older sisters and if we didn’t still have eggs left in the tank and bills to pay, we would have kept this heifer too! The M2 donor has left us many great cows and we just lost her at 15 years old, so its safe to say that longevity is bred in to this cow family. If you are looking for a heifer that will make a powerful cow with a Dream On free pedigree, take a look at 7E on sale day.

Easily the deepest sided heifer that we have ever produced and also the coolest fronted all at the same time. Did I mention that she is a purebred out of the great Ebony’s Joy cow family. She also possess a solid set of EPDs with an API that lands her in the Top 15% of the breed. She is kid broke, flawless in her structure and homo black. Her future earning potential is unlimited and I would not be surprised if she spends the next year hanging a few banners before she moves onto raising one great one after another!

This beautiful baldy is a full sister to the great JS Black Satin (Boots). Boots sold for $30,500 to Griswold Cattle & was purchased at the 2015 Iowa Beef Expo & claimed the record books for the highest selling Simmental heifer for the Expo. There is only one female in Simmental history to win the Triple Crown & the Simmental Jr. National. Boots holds that respected honor. The Broker x JS Flirt-A-Way 59Y has been a great mating for us & many others. Fall 2017 high sellers at each respected sale: Boss Cattle - $40,000, Campbell & Paulsen $21,000 & JS Simmental $16,750. We believe this offering of JS Flying High 7E is an exceptional opportunity for anyone looking for diversity & options in a donor program & a strong competitor in the show ring. She has the same great structure, stout level hip & one of the cleanest, longest fronted of all the sisters. The pedigree is proven with an extraordinary history & track record.

If you’re looking for a fancy purebred female, look no further! This April heifer is out of our Beef King x Onyx herd bull and a great baldy Steel Force cow, and let us tell you; this combination is a sure thing! This baldy female is soft sided with a deep middle and very square hip. Her front is extremely long and feminine, and is sure to catch your eye. She pulls it together both phenotypically and with her EPDs. She’d make a great junior project or would be a solid female for the front pasture.

This purebred girl SFIS Eleanor is still around and being offered to you only because of the recipient mother that raised her. This elegant baldy heifer got a slow start in life, but now has caught up to her full sister that recently was named calf champion at the 2017 American Royal. She is sired by Profit, that semen is not currently on the open market, and Sandeen Donna 4325, our lead ‘female” producing donor. (Remington Lock n Load x Donna 8386). We look forward to Eleanor getting into a good home and taking her on the road to show against her red baldy sister Crystal Gayle. If you are lucky as we were, Eleanor will go on to be a great donor for your future program.

When we saw this heifer at Ron Shivers we had to own her. We acquired her to late for our sale but felt like she would be perfect for the Expo sale. It is simply hard to find purebreds with this kind of look. Long and attractive fronted, true maternal middle shape, smooth jointed but yet aggressively built. She will be a real force in the show ring as well as genetically intriguing being out of A Step Up with Pays to Believe on the bottom side.

I can’t say enough about this one. She’s a hard one to let go. Show broke and has a great disposition. She has got it all – deep bodied, level topped, smooth shouldered and very attractive. After her show career, she will make a great cow. She is out of the best daughter of our well known American Girl N07J. This is a great cow family. Her mother’s maternal brother was Grand Champion bull at the Iowa State Fair a few years ago and several of her maternal sisters have brought from $5,000 to $17,000. Don’t miss her.

This heifer is the result of a great breeding piece offered by GSJG Cattle/Matt Greiman Family, during last years’ Expo, and was the High Selling Female in Lot #103. This daughter of Hooks Broadway continues to do what all really good cattle do, get better every day. When you get this female on the move, she has great flex to her pastern, and has a long easy stride, really stepping down on her track. From a side profile, we appreciate her length of hip and how she blends into her shoulder. We love the broody appearance of this heifer. She is full of volume and has an eye catching belly swoop. Don’t miss this April heifer as she will be very competitive in the show ring and a productive component of anyone’s brood cow program.

No matter what part of the cattle industry you’re in, you want cattle that can get across the pasture or show ring, and can also make calves that are easily marketable. With this heifer that won’t be a problem.

She is as sound and correct structured as they come, pretty as a picture and has a great disposition. Carrie has a lot of fun working on this heifer because she would be shaggy in the middle of the desert! She has been shown one time at the Iowa State Fair and has already won a tough class. The judge commented that she had the brightest future in the division line-up and she is definitely proving him right.

Here is your chance to get in on the ground floor of a donor female who is just getting ready to take off! AJE Miss Isabelle was one of the top selling females in the Foundation Female Sale in 2017, in that sale she sold alongside a heifer calf by Big Deal who commanded $12,000 and a bull calf by Big Deal who took in $6,000. Those calves where prized for their outstanding look, and impressive structural design. The embryos being offered are IVF sexed heifer embryos by two of the hottest bulls in the breed. Study the Relentless progeny in the offering and I’m sure you will be impressed. Oracle was the 2015 Reserve Champion bull at the NAILE and is sure creating a name for himself.

Quick Guide to ASA EPDs & $ Indexes Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs): The most accurate and effective tool available for comparing genetic levels. In using EPDs, the difference between two sires’ EPDs represents the unit difference expected in the performance of their progeny. For example, if sires A & B have EPDs of +10 and -5, a 15 unit difference would be expected in their progeny. Key to using EPDs is knowing what units they are expressed in. For example if the above case referred to weaning weight, A would be expected to sire 15 pounds more at weaning than B. If calving ease were the trait, A would be expected to sire 15 percent more unassisted births in first calf heifers; in other words, if B sired 30 assists in a group of 100 heifers, we’d expect A to require 15 assists. A percentile ranking chart is required to determine where a bull’s EPDs rank him relative to other bulls in the breed. $ Indexes: Though EPDs allow for the comparison of genetic levels for many economically important traits, they only provide a piece of the economic puzzle. That’s where $ indexes come in. Through well conceived, rigorous mathematical computation, $ indexes blend EPDs and economics to estimate an animal’s overall impact on your bottom line. The same technology that led to the dramatic progress in swine, poultry, and dairy genetics over the last several decades. All-Purpose Index (API): Evaluates sires for use on the entire cow herd (bred to both first-calf heifers and mature cows) with the portion of their daughters required to maintain herd size and the remaining heifers and steers put on feed and sold grade & yield. Terminal Index (TI): Evaluates sire for use on mature cows with all offspring put on feed and sold grade and yield.

Iowa Bull Buyers Guide • Every bull selling will be free of all known genetic defects either by genetic testing or by pedigree. The ASA abnormality policy is a scientifically based approach to managing and ultimately reducing the incidence of genetic abnormalities in the Simmental breed. Visit the ASA’s website www.simmental.org to learn more. • All bulls must meet strict Iowa Beef Expo performance standards: Minimum weight per day of age of 3 lbs. Minimum adjusted yearling weight of 1100 lbs. Minimum scrotal circumference of 33 cm • All bulls selling will be ultrasounded for marbling, backfat, and ribeye area. Data will be adjusted to 365 days of age. • All bulls must pass a breeding soundness exam, be halter broke, and have an acceptable disposition. • All bulls selling are guaranteed breeders. These tough standards are in place to give you, the buyer, a premium and problem free product. Let your dollars go further by purchasing bulls who have passed this test!

Using API & TI: First determine which index to use; if you’re keeping replacements use API, if not, TI. Then, just as with EPDs, zero in on the unit difference between bulls. (As described before, index units are in dollars per cow exposed.) The difference can be used to determine how much a bull is worth compared to another. Or, put another way, how much you can pay for one bull compared to another. For example, when buying an all purpose type sire, you can quickly figure a bull scoring 100 for API is worth an extra $6,000 over a 50 API bull if both are exposed to 30 cows over 4 years ($50 diff. x 30 hd x 4 yr. = $6,000). A percentile-ranking chart is required to determine where a bull’s index value ranks him relative to other bulls in the breed. For a percentile rankings or more detailed information about EPDs and $ indexes visit www.simmental.org. Units of Expression of ASA EPDs (listed alphabetically): All-Purpose Index (API): Dollars per cow exposed under an all purpose sire scenario. Back Fat (BF): Inches of backfat. Birth Weight (BW): Pound of birth weight Calving Ease (CE): Percent of unassisted births when used on heifers. Carcass Weight (CW): Pounds of carcass weight. Maternal Calving Ease (MCE): Percent of unassisted births in first-calving daughters. Marbling (MB): Marbling score. Maternal Weaning Weight (MWW): Pounds of weaning weight due to milk and growth. Ribeye Area (REA): Square inches of ribeye. Stayability (STAY): Percent of daughters remaining in the cowherd at 6 years of age. Terminal Index (TI): Dollars per cow exposed under a terminal sire scenario. Weaning Weight (WW): Pounds of weaning weight. Yearling Weight (YW): Pounds of yearling weight. Yield Grade (YG): Yield grade score.
